'“A culture cannot evolve without powerful, honest storytelling

-Robert McKee, Story: Substance, Structure, Style, and the Principles of Screenwriting

Stories illustrate our universally shared experiences. The Cold Reading Series (CRS) is committed to supporting and developing the talents of Vancouver’s story tellers – writers, actors, and musicians alike – by providing a forum where they can present their craft to a live audience and get instant feedback. Meet likeminded artists, writers, directors, actors.

Come stretch your artistic muscles and flex your humanity…join the Evolution!

At the CRS we cast brand new scripts on the spot and watch them fly in front of a live audience. Local musicians are also invited to share their work-in-progress in the “unplugged” musical segment of the evening. Every live reading ends with a party in the Lounge where you can meet up with other artists over a cold beer. The CRS is the place for Vancouver’s artists to meet one another, share their work, and create more.

If you are curious about what local writers and musicians are cooking up, or if you want to check out Vancouver actors, the Cold Reading Series is your place to be.
